Controlling Crown of Thorns #2

Diver conducting the tests with the new protein mixture that is made with bile salts that are collected from the bile of bovines after they have been slaughtered. Bile salts are marketed as a food supplement for humans and are cheap and readily available. Only one injection of the new solution is necessary, preferably in the inner part of one of the arms of the starfish.
